You can still browse by changing the URL just like before. Eg:

http://www.housepetscomic.com/character/Bailey
http://www.housepetscomic.com/character/Great-Kitsune

Regarding the other stuffs, I think Rick will get to it when he has time.

Oh, good to know. Thanks.
But it would be great if they come back officially.

Good to know. Maybe in the future though he could set up a tab by the merchandise button for a list of all of these links. On another forum I'm on, someone programmed a page search index using these tags.

Character tags have been added. Apparently adding in lists for custom taxonomies was more complicated than I thought.

Yay! This'll make searching around significantly easier, especially for resources. Also, they actually look like tags. Nice.

Where are they exactly? Cause I can't seem to find them.

Edit: Never mind, I found them.

Yeah, they're only on the individual comic pages. Sadly still missing on the main page. But it's progress! YAY!

For some reason the URL is eating-grass (original title?) instead of grass-stains so the old link to the comic from its forum thread (and any other links around the internet) don't autocorrect and just 404 instead.
Probably because the file itself is called eating-grass.png, looks like rick changed the title once it was uploaded

So it's been a year now, I know Rick's been busy (which makes total sense), but wasn't he going to update the forums aswell?

From what I've heard, the strips used to have a comments section. Could it be possible to read the old comments via Wayback Machine if anyone remembers the old URL?

I actually found out about Freefall from the old site's comment section. I kind of liked the comments. They were always pretty full. Though, I probably wouldn't have checked out the forums had Rick kept the old comment format...

Same here. I was somewhat hesitant to make an account even after the announcement of the comment section shut-down.

yeah, sites tend to have one or the other. the ones i know of that have both either integrate them so she share a single back end to save on resources (IE: comments actually being forum threads that are getting transposed onto sections of the site outside the forums, and it's the same login for both) or one drowns out the other and people start ignoring the one they use less.

If it comments ever get brought back, the 'forum integration' option would probably be better in the long run. It'd take more to implement initially, but having one system instead of two would likely eat less server resources, and i can see a shared login acting as an easy entry point from one to the other.

Seeing as it's been a year and a half since the site overhaul, I wanted to see what it would look like with the old buttons

In case Rick reads this and wants to change it:

Here is a modified navstyle.css FOR PREVIEW ONLY (It links to archive.org instead of the site because the files don't exist anymore)

Here is a final navstyle.css, the button files have to be replaced in order for it to work

The files to be replaced should be located in wp-content/plugins/comic-easel/images/nav/silver/
